Japanese Oaks Best Bet - Daring Tact

There have been only five fillies in history to complete the fillies Triple Crown, the latest being Almond Eye who is the world's best horse.

Daring Tact was an electric winner of the Oka Sho over 1600m last start and looks as if she will run out every bit of the 2400m here.

The leaders had a huge break on the field around the bend and kept kicking, but Daring Tact was the sole filly to make up such a tremendous amount of ground in the straight, looking the superior stayer.

She meets pretty much the same field in this race besides Des Ailes who's best win was last start over 1800m.

A run produced in the same style as last start's Group One win would see her win this race and prove the dominant filly heading into the third leg of the Triple Crown.

Japanese Oaks Value Bet - Miyamazakura

This filly caught the eye late in the piece in the Oka Sho, coming from near last to end up in fifth position.

She lacked a turn of foot when the sprint went on, which shows that she is a filly looking for the extra ground which she will get in this race.

The 2400m journey is often a stretch for the younger fillies, meaning that the horses that have a bigger lung capacity are able to pick them up a lot easier.

The filly looks best suited to this race out of all three Triple Crown races and at the price, she looks a great each-way bet in this race.
